Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Doctor of Ministry Thesis-Project
Abstract: Like every organization, churches need leaders. Pastors can sit back and hope leaders emerge on their own or they can take an active role in developing leaders, viewing it as part of their discipleship responsibility. As demonstrated in Scripture and in other literature, pastors who choose to be intentional about it will share leadership, develop people, and leave behind a legacy of leaders.
The goal of this thesis-project is to assess and evaluate a program designed to develop leaders at Crossway Christian Church, in Nashua, NH. This thesis-project will discuss what was discovered after working with a group of ten lay leaders over the course of one year.
